Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre played host to the award-winning duo.
Sugarland rolled into Alpharetta on Thursday to put on a sort of "homecoming" concert, as many of the members either hail from Georgia or live here now. For those of you who don't know, a concert by Sugarland is filled with fan participation. Sure, many performers hold the microphone out to the crowd to belt out an occasional chorus. But for Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, there has to be more. Fans bring posters, but these aren't just you average, every day posters filled with text and maybe a hand drawn copy of a band logo. Nope, these are bedazzled, filled with photos, bordered with fringe – not drawn, but an actual fringe. And on Thursday night, there was even a train with separate cars, plus a poster with a sheep that had what …
